Buried City of Pompei book. Shelley Tanaka brings the story of the ancient city and the modern archaeological site to life in The Buried City of Pompeii (A Hyperian/Madison Press Book 1997). One of the bodies I have always been fascinated by the city of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city preserved at a moment in history because it was buried in volcanic ash. I remember wondering what archaeologists of the future would learn about my life if some disaster preserved my home and town, only to be rediscovered centuries later.

the town of Pompeii was completely buried under volcanic ash and molten rock when the volcano Vesuvius exploded. who these people were, what their lives were like, and what they were doing when the volcano exploded.

Two thousand years ago, by the Bay of Naples, the town of Pompeii was completely buried under volcanic ash and molten rock when the volcano Vesuvius exploded. About seventy years ago, archaeologists uncovered one of the finest houses in the city, along with three skeletons: one of a man, one of a young girl, and one of a dog. Using clues from the excavation site, along with their knowledge of life in Italy 2,000 years ago, archaeologists have recreated who these people were, what their lives were like, and what they were doing when the volcano exploded.

Mount Vesuvius, a volcano near the Bay of Naples in Italy, has erupted more than 50 times. Its most famous eruption took place in the year 79 . when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash. The dust poured across the land like a flood, one witness wrote, and shrouded the city in a darknes. ike the black of closed and unlighted rooms. Two thousand people died, and the city was abandoned for almost as many years.

Pompeii was basically lost and forgotten until it was rediscovered in 1748. Visiting the ruins of Pompeii is like going back in time. Thanks to excavations, which are still going on today, scientists have been able to figure out almost exactly what happened on that terrible day. The sky is falling. The layers of ash actually helped preserve buildings, artwork, and even the forms of bodies as they decomposed and left holes in the ash. All that allowed experts to fill in the details that might not have survived at many other Roman sites.

Mount Vesuvius destroyed the city of Pompeii, a city south of Rome, in. .The noise is like that of bowling balls slapping into the pins on a giant bowling alley. 79 in about 25 hours, according to History. Because the city was buried so quickly by volcanic ash, the site is a well-preserved snapshot of life in a Roman city. To look above the mountain tonight, one would think that the world was on fire. The thickly clouded sky glows like that above a huge forest fire.

Pompeii (/pɒmˈpeɪ(i)/, Latin: ) was an ancient Roman city located in the modern comune of Pompei near Naples in the Campania region of Italy. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area (. at Boscoreale, Stabiae), was buried under 4 to 6 m (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79.

Where is Pompeii? Pompeii was once a very prosperous ancient Roman town on the Gulf of Naples, in Italy's Campania region. The city was home 11,000 people and boasted a complex water system, amphitheatre, gymnasium and even a port. It was buried in millions of tonnes of volcanic ash when Mount Vesuvius catastrophically erupted in 79AD. It completely buried the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in volcanic waste and turned people to ash where they stood. Around 2,000 people are believed to have been killed in Pompeii, which had a population of 11,000 at the time.
